Join Couchsurfing to see Ricardo’s full profile. It’s free!
It's very interesting and fun to meet people from other places, learn their languages, about their culture and see their personalities! We can share our travel experience and in my house I gladly lend a couch or a bed and show visitors about Mexico!!
I'm a 28 year old male, i enjoy swimming for health and fitness, I'm currently a spanish literature student, so i love reading!! specially spanish poetry, 20th century novels and anything 19th century and the romantic period.
I like to have fun in a healthy way, i love talking about anything, and have a good time, i don't drink but i like going out and enjoy social events and bars, specially jazz music.
I also like walking a lot, specially on cool, quiet streets and stand still watching buildings. Also enjoy a cup of coffee anytime. Ocasionally i go out with friends but also like to stay home watching old films, listening to jazz or rock and reading of course!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'd like to provide a couch to people who come to mexico city anytime I can, and i think a lot of persons will be surprised to find out how crazy and different things are over here. André Breton said it was the surreal capital of the world =D.
I've been hosted in several countries in europe, i had a great time!! I was showed around and we also went out at night.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach spanish, i'd love to discuss films and I have a little film collection so there's always good stuff to watch. I'm very interested in learning other languages even if its only a few words.
Also learning some piano and studying spanish literature, so i can recommend incredible novels and classics, specially from the 20th century latinoamerican boom, which few people outside the spanish speaking world know about.
